Security Training

Personal computers, e-mail, the Internet, and the need for high-speed, reliable network capability are a daily part of life for members of the University community. Like many university campuses, KU is experiencing an increase in unauthorized attempts to access its network and computer systems. While it is not possible to anticipate and intercept all attacks, there are specific steps that can significantly reduce vulnerability. One of the best ways is through user education and awareness training. We all play a part in protecting our individual computers and information, as well as University systems and data.

If you have questions or want to schedule training, contact the IT Security Office (ITSO) at 785-864-9003 or, or use the contact form.


Individual Information and Training

ITSO provides training and security awareness and information to students, faculty and staff through published resources, workshops, seminars and the BeSeKUre facebook page.

Department Techinical Staff Training

The department technical staff members on campus are the first line of defense in protecting the integrity of unit systems and data. We provide training to equip technical staff with the up-to-date knowledge and skills they need to protect their customers.

Training for KU Managers and Staff

ITSO also offers general security awareness sessions to educate staff at all levels about security concerns, risks, and available resources, both for the University and individual units.
